Houston Bloggers Pedal Party Meet-Up

If you live in Houston and have ever driven down Washington Avenue on a weekend, you've probably seen these human powered party-mobiles either parked outside a bar or cruising down the street.  Every time I see one all I can think is how much fun all the passengers must be having!  So I was super excited when I found out Hello Houston! Media and Blog Free were organizing a meetup for local bloggers that was being sponsored by Pedal Party and Little Soya Soy Sauce.

this is what fun looks like
Sunday night, Dennis and I joined almost 30 other Houston bloggers for a bar hoppin' ride around the Heights.  We met at Pedal Party's secret headquarters and embarked on the Adventurous Route of the Washington Ave - East End Tour (guaranteed to be a calorie burner, and boy, are they right!).  Pedal Party provided us with two pedal bikes to accommodate everyone, and we were constantly racing each other all night.  The pedal bikes are street legal and we traveled on regular city streets the whole time.  If you go on a Pedal Party there are several routes to choose from and they can all be customized to include bars or stops of your choice.

bloggers travel in packs


The Adventurous Route was, well, adventurous!  Our Captain, Stephanie made sure to keep us all hyped up with a fun playlist of dance music and Dennis ended up being our bartender (how did I not end up with a picture of this?!?).  Yes, you can bring alcohol on your Pedal Party, just no glass containers or hard liquor allowed.  The entire evening reminded me of the best spin class ever!  Although I don't know why my arms were also sore the next morning; I think I was holding on to the bar for dear life (not that there was any risk of falling off, I just think I'm crazy - the seats are actually really stable).  Seriously, I had so much fun!!!



If pedaling your way around Houston with a group of your friends sounds like a good time to you, go reserve your bike now!!!  Be sure to tell them Hello Houston! Media and Blog Free sent you!  And if you want to check out all the tweeting that happened during the party, search for our hashtag, #HOUbloggerspedalparty
